Alki Beach in West Seattle is a great beach for year-round activities including firepits and volleyball. Alki Beach is considered the best beach in Seattle and the house is only about a three minute walk to the beach. This wonderful one bedroom apartment has been fully remodeled and has all the comforts of home. The large bedroom has big closets and would easily accomodate a crib/playpen. The open floorplan living room / kitchen eating space is light and bright with a full stove, fridge, diswasher and microwave. The outdoor patio has place to sit and enjoy some time outside. Great parking right outside your unit. The 40' smart TV's allow you access to your Netflix accounts.
Newly remodeled, 1 bedroom, sleeper, kit w/eat space. Two 40' flat screen TVs

About Sarah Campbell
We currently live in West Seattle! We have raised our kids here and enjoyed many a day at Alki Beach. We run a local small business and are really excited with the launch of our new 'vacation rental'. We know a glimpse of West Seattle will make you love it as much as we do. Just a bridge or water taxi ride away from all the excitement and amenities of Downtown Seattle while offering the remote feel of an island. We look forward to your reviews of your stay at our 'Alki Abode'.
Sarah Campbell purchased this Apartment in 2013
Why Sarah Campbell chose Alki
We recently purchased the separate mainhouse and saw the potential to have a separate VRBO close to the beach.
This guest house works....
My wife and I stayed here for nine nights and it worked. Sarah was accountable and on point with our requests. Short walk to beach is accurate based on previous reviews. Two mile walk to the ferry (Water Taxi) is affordable and a great way to commute into the city. Views of "The Sound" were beautiful and a great place for a morning run on Alki Beach. Bathroom and shower are on the first floor with main living space upstairs. All and all this guest house fits the bill and our stay here was a positive experience....
Great beach location in an awesome, laid back neighborhood!
This property is in a great location - literally a 2 minute walk to the beach, coffee shops, restaurants and the awesome Alki Beach path. Note that there's a free shuttle to the water taxi that will take you downtown for about $6/person one way. An Uber or Lyft could be as expensive as $30+ depending on the time of day. The property itself is well-kept and big enough for 4 people (2 adults & 2 kids) for sleeping. However, the kitchen table is tiny and difficult for the 4 of us to eat on and the outside seating area doesn't amount to more than a little concrete slab with 2 chairs, a small coffee table and a grill. Then again, you are right by the beach so not that big of a deal. Note that the bathroom is downstairs, and everything else is upstairs, but you get used to it quickly. The property would be 5 stars if there'd been a few more amenities, like salt & pepper and other commonly used spices, more beach towels (only comes with 2), and more toiletries. It could also use some kitchen towels so you don't constantly have to use paper towels (seems wasteful), and some recycle and compost bins inside. The neighborhood is lovely and Sarah was super attentive, so I definitely recommend this property for a Seattle beach vacation!
No air flow!
It was very warm and humid weather-wise when we were here, and since it's above a garage with no air conditioning, it was very, very hot and sticky inside. I felt like I was sweating the entire time. You need to either put in A/C or build a deck somehow. There is no where to sit outside except a narrow patio which looks at the backyard of the owner's house through a fence. Not ideal. Additionally, they had an outdoor party which was loud at times. We were also surprised that there was no coffee, yet you provide a coffee maker. I've stayed at Air BnB's before and they always had coffee. The place was clean and the bed was fine. I would not stay here again unless the heating/cooling situation is addressed.
Great little spot right by the beach! Thanks!
Tastefully appointed, very small garage apartment
This two room garage apartment is tastefully appointed, well located in west Seattle but it is not for a person having difficulty navigating stairs. Had the listing fully disclosed the floorplan and stairs I would not have rented. The bathroom is located on the ground floor with living space up about 15 stairs. Parking is OK for smaller vehicles and manageable for a small van. The is no air conditioning but the unit does have two fans. The location near restaurants and bus lines is a plus. Sarah and the property manager are both very responsive.
Great time at the Alki Beach Abode
We stayed a week at the abode and really did have a great time. The location was the best thing about the stay. It was really nice to be able to walk to the beach in the mornings, get some coffee and some breakfast and enjoy the peaceful waves. The abode itself was very nice. It was clean and exactly as advertised. It was also nice to have contact with the manager prior to our visit. She was available to answer my questions, of which I had several! I gave it 4 stars only because of some of the little things. We stayed a week and there were no extra bath towels. We actually used the kitchen quite a bit and kept running out of, or not having, the needed bowls or utensils. It would have been great to have some of the staples there, like sugar. We had to buy a whole thing of sugar. I left it behind and hopefully, someone else can use it. There was a great closet, but only a few hangers. I really needed several more. So, like I said it was just little things that they could add to the Abode that would make it just incredible! I should say that the value for the price was very good and I would definitely stay there again, and I think that is the ultimate compliment.
We are minutes away from the Water Taxi, a very unique/fun way to downtown Seattle's waterfront and a short walk to Pike Place Market.
